Looking for ways to give back?

The Mangum-Howell Center’s Doss Advisory Council is sponsoring a holiday food and toy drive. A collection barrel will be placed in the Center lobby from Wednesday, Nov. 1 to Tuesday, Dec. 12. Nonperishable food items such as canned vegetables, fruits, meats, juices, and cereals are welcome. Visitors are encouraged to make their donation during the annual holiday luncheon Tuesday, Dec. 12. All food donations will go to the food bank at Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM).

New, unwrapped toys are being accepted at Mangum-Howell Center through November. All donations will be distributed by the Houston Children’s Charity and the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. Suggested items include dolls, cars, action figures, trucks, tool kits, board games, art kits, and puzzles.

Volunteer opportunities are also available at the Center during Santa’s Workshop Friday, Dec. 1 at 5:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 2 at 2 p.m., and Friday, Dec. 8 at 5:30 p.m. Volunteers can help with ornament decorating, children’s crafts and games, hayride songs, serving refreshments, and even playing Mrs. Claus!
